Source: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

Provides strategies that communities can use to support walking, which we hope will result in long-lasting changes to improve the health and health care of Americans today and of the generations that follow. The Call to Action adds to our work to educate, empower, and engage Americans to take control of their health, including initiatives like the National Prevention Strategy: America’s Plan for Better Health and Wellness, the National Physical Activity Plan, Healthy People 2020, and the Healthy Self campaign.
